FAQ's: Interpretation Systems for Courtrooms
Due to health-related restrictions, we cannot do whisper interpretation anymore, what system do you recommend for simultaneous interpretation in courtrooms?
For courtrooms, we recommend a portable solution such as the Enersound TSP system. It will allow the interpreter to not only move around freely and to be heard loud and clear by the limited English proficient, but also to maintain social distancing from all parties involved.
What kind of interpreting system should we get, that will allow a non-English speaker to ask questions?
A two-way system is required for this scenario such as the Enersound BTSIC2 solution, which includes a dual interpreter console that allows two interpreters of the same language combination to take turns interpreting. This system also features two transmitters, so that interpretation can go into the foreign language and vice-versa such as when the foreign speaker asks questions. For a portable solution, ListenTalk or Digiwave systems can be used.
How can we properly store devices when not in use?
A carrying case should be considered to store and transport your interpreting system. It allows you to safely secure all components when not in use and it is also great for transportation. Carrying cases can be of various sizes depending on the size of your system. Some cases also can recharge the units.
What kind of microphones do you recommend using with portable transmitters?
We recommend headband mics such as the Enersound MIC-200SEN, which features a locking ring which firmly attaches it to the Enersound TP-600 and TP-600-4 FM transmitters. Other brands might use a different microphone plug so it’s always prudent to check the specs of the transmitter that you’re thinking of purchasing for compatibility.
In our court room sometimes multiple languages need to be interpreted at the same time, how many languages can these systems handle?
FM systems in 72-76 MHz, which are compliant with FCC regulations work within a narrow range of frequencies that the FCC sets aside for language interpretation and assistive listening applications, and within this range only six FM signals can coexist in the same location at the same time. This limitation is not related to any system in particular or manufacturer, but it’s a requirement of all properly FCC-approved transmitters.
